Founder of the Forgiveness Project


Starting out her career as a freelancer journalist, between 1990-2004 Marina focussed her time on writing stories about ordinary people’s struggles and triumphs: the challenges they faced with their relationships, their health, and their work.

This line of work lead her to start The Forgiveness Project in 2004, which sets out to tell the real stories of people whose response to being harmed was not a call for revenge, but rather a quest for restoration and healing.

With the ultimate goal of sharing this way of thinking globally, Marinas book The Forgiveness Project: Stories for a Vengeful Age, brings together personal testimonies of both survivors and perpetrators of crime and violence and asks the question, does forgiveness have more currency than revenge in an age which seems locked into the cycle of conflict.

Her book includes forewords by Nobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, award-winning author, Alexander McCall Smith, as well as a variety of endorsements.
